First-year Students will be entering the UI immediately following graduation from high school even though they may have completed university or community college courses.
Initial admission decisions are based on a correlation between cumulative, unweighted, accredited high school GPA and the highest ACT composite score or the highest SAT critical reading and math scores as approximated in our GPA, SAT and ACT correlation chart.
Applicants who meet the initial admission index will be asked to submit four short compositions (one to two double-spaced paragraphs) which describe significant learning experiences and perspectives. If you do not receive the emailed composition topics after checking your “spam” folder and verifying youremail address, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Your application is not considered complete until the UHP has received your initial application and your four short compositions.
If you do not meet initial admission requirements from the GPA, SAT and ACT correlation chart, we still encourage you to complete the application process. After you receive the emailed composition topics, submit the following supplementalinformation electronically to email@example.com:
- Four brief compositions
- Two letters of recommendation from teachers who can evaluate your academic potential
- List of your high school activities and accomplishments
- Paragraph describing why you would like to be a member of the Honors Program. Include information on honors or advanced courses taken in high school, and any specific circumstances you would like for us to consider in our admission decision
If you are home-schooled or from a non-accredited high school, we may ask you to provide letters of recommendation from two teachers to supplement your application.
